    Default EpiCatt NONAME

    I assume this is an Epi catt but it has no tag and I can't find anything in my inventory that would match anywhere close to it.

    If anyone recognizes it a direction to look would be appreciated. I don't recall this ever blooming for me before. It might have been a plant given to me by a Hawaiian vendor a couple of years ago. She gifted me a bunch of Catts in return for a favor.

    The flower is about 1.5 " wide. It may have C guttata in it by the lip shape. So, it may be Epicat Joseph Beckenbach (C guttata x Enc tampensis) but I can't find a pic of this cross on my searchs.

    It is lovely, does it have a fragrance? Can't help with a name.

    It looks like it should but it was late in the day and had just opened when I found it. I will check it tomorrow for fragrance

    Thanks for the link. A friend has OrchidWiz and the pic of the awarded clone looks like mine. I really think it is Epicat Joseph Beckenbach (C guttata x Enc tampensis). I suspect it is a mericlone of the awarded plant and that C guttata fma alba was used in the cross.
